Due to a change in hosting services, my website is temporarily down. All of my newer posts have been lost for whatever reason. I should be back up and running within the week after SXSW 2017… so stay tuned!
All I have to say is WOW…what a weekend! It was great partying with DJ Vice, DJ Z-Trip, DJ Dynamix, DJ HEM, DJ Fishr, along with my Austin DJ buddies! Shout out to Red Bull for hooking it up at the F1 Redbull Racing Team party that went on until 5am Monday morning! And it was an honor opening up for the legendary Bad Boy Bill for the MI3ER event. Too many stories to tell and not enough time to tell them, so I’ll leave it with one word….SHENANIGANS!
This upcoming weekend is going to be another one for the books. As Formula 1 comes to Austin, TX! There will be plenty to do in Downtown Austin as the city gets taken over by worldwide race fans. I feel privileged to be able to take part in such a big event. Friday I will be DJ’n for COTA’s (Circuit of the Americas) official VIP party at Hangar Lounge and Sunday I will be playing an opening set for a very special surprise headliner for the F1 weekend MI3ER closing party taking place at Six Lounge. Stay tuned for updates!
This Thursday HANGAR LOUNGE in downtown Austin will be holding it’s monthly VIP party. This month is getting into the spirit of ‘MERICA! Trailer park chic is the theme and we will be having some good ol’ knee slappin’ fun! Moonshine will be flowing! I will be laying down the soundtrack to the night. Hope to see you there!
Last weekend was definitely an eventful one. If you don’t know what Tough Mudder is, you should really look into it! This was my second year participating. My team, FAMILIA CHUPITOS, consisted of 14 family and friends coming from Kansas and all the way from Juarez, Mexico. I am proud to say that our whole team was able to finish and as a team cross the finish line together. For now I’ll let me scrapes and bruises heal…Until the next one!
Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, was an inspiration to many current DJ’s. Many will say that he wasn’t the best DJ, but what they can’t deny is that he was definitely one of the most influential ones. I remember back when I first came upon this youtube:
This clip, I will admit, completely changed the way I saw DJ’n. Mind you, I was already involved in the DJ game. Moving from my early college years as a Latin music DJ to eventually an EDM (Trance/House) DJ. But stumbling upon this clip was what inspired me to become what is currently known as an “Open Format” DJ. Ever since then I began to follow DJ AM’s youtube clips and rare mix releases as I began to grow as a DJ. I enjoyed listening to all sorts of music on my own time but never thought they would work at a club. Listening to DJ AM I began to realize that, if properly put together, I could play pretty much any song I wanted while still keeping the crowd going. For that I thank him. I will have to say that I was lucky enough to catch him live in Kansas City and I will admit that it was one of the most fun times I’ve ever had as a club patron.
